Flower House Detroit Book

Artist: Heather Saunders Photography

Introducing the new book from Flower House project photographer and collaborator Heather Saunders.  Flower House Detroit was a floral art installation conceived by floral designer + contemporary artist Lisa Waud of Pot+Box. 

Held in a formerly abandoned property Waud purchased for $500, she was inspired by the works of Christo and Jean Claude – long term planning, short exhibition. With this model and her collaborative spirit, she initiated plans to create a project with her day-to-day medium, flowers and plants, in the vacant properties. Over 3 days in October 2015, florists and designers from across the U.S and Canada filled the entire 18-room house with American-grown flowers. 3500 visitors and press from around the country then gathered to walk through the exhibition in awe and amazement. The book reflects through imagery on the year-long preparation for the project, including photographs from the exclusive preview house and then finally Lisa’s FLOWER HOUSE installation come to life.

Also featured: words from the collaborating designers, thoughts on the decision to use only American-grown plants and flowers, comments on the experience from visitors and a powerful section of acknowledgements to all those who made this incredible project possible.
